Washington DC

I am with my family in Washington, DC. A long time friend and mentor, Howard Berrian, is being honored with internment at Arlington Cemetery. Hap was the recipient of a Silver Star for his service to this country. He was a Marine who fought at Okinawa and Guam .
Last night after arriving here with my family, we took a walk in the cool of the evening around the George Washington Monument, World War Two Memorial,  the Lincoln Memorial and the Vietnam War Memorial.
It was a humbling experience to be reminded of the great love so many generations  have had for this country, it's ideals, and for their fellow citizens.
